Key Quote from Assigned Reading

Cinematography is not about equipment, technology or even beautiful sunsets or vistas. I believe we affect the audience in a much more subtle way. It's about the composition and lighting and storytelling. I believe actors respond to light. Just look at a Rembrandt or Caravaggio painting, or any of the Dutch masters, and tell me light isn't important.
